A couple of weeks after Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) launched PlayStation VR Secret Sorcery released strategy adventure title Tethered for the device. Today the studio has now confirmed it’ll be adding support for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.
Since Tethered’s arrival in October the studio has developed a range of motion controller interactions allowing players to physically use their hands in the world. As such support for Touch, HTC Vive and PlayStation Move have been confirmed.
“Tethered has never looked more beautiful. Harnessing the additional power of PC VR platforms and PS4 Pro, we’ve created an even more magical experience that really helps cement the player’s sense of immersion. With your hands in the world in front of you, reaching out to interact with things feels totally intuitive,” said Alan McDermott, creative director at Secret Sorcery in a statement. “Until now, the player’s perspective was fixed to the clouds, but with motion control, you can physically move through the lovingly hand painted environments and get really close to the Peeps to watch them carry out their tasks! You can even scale your presence so you’re the same size as a Peep (which genuinely heightens the emotional connection the player has with them) or bigger than the island itself (so it appears as a tiny diorama laid out before you). We’ve also included a range of options to allow the player to customize their hands-on experience and, of course, standard controller configuration is still available on all platforms.
“We couldn’t be more excited about bringing our beautiful virtual reality game to Windows PC platform and we can’t wait for Oculus and HTC Vive players to join the quest to save the Peeps from the evils of the night!”
Secret Sorcery hasn’t confirmed when Tethered will be released on Rift and Vive, but when it does VRFocus will let you know.
